Finding the time and funding for hands-on professional learning is a challenge many educators know all too well. Microsoft, in partnership with TCEA, is hosting a free day of learning designed to give you the time you need to explore tools that are designed for your K-12 classroom. Join us at TCEA headquarters in Austin on March 23, 2016, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. for this free Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) Teacher Academy.
Since you won’t need to worry about cost (lunch is included), you can focus on learning about the best tools for your K-12 classroom. All you need to bring is your own Windows 8.1 or 10 device. Some of the day’s highlights will include:
Collaboration and Creativity
Discover new tools for encouraging collaboration and creativity like Office Mix, Sway, and OneNote. You can use these tools for projects like creating digital notebooks, which are a great way to showcase student learning and help students build a positive digital footprint.
Since time is a teacher’s most valuable resource, you’ll also want to learn how cloud-based solutions like Office 365 can streamline your workflow and help minimize all those duplicate steps in your day.
In addition to the many ways cloud-based tools will enable connections and discussions between your students and you, learn about connecting your classroom to the world with Skype in the Classroom.
Attendees will also receive a Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) badge and certificate, plus complimentary certification vouchers for the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) and Microsoft Certified Educator (MCE) exams.
